Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer. We would need to know exactly at what point in the programs it does it ;-0(
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid as primary suspects. Secondary suspects could be main motor, drain motor.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Also as a help for the future there is no need to change a fuse if it hasn't blown ;-0)
Sorry again and good luck,
John C

Hotpoint model 6671P convection microwave keeps tripping mains panel Fuse when start is pressed. Could this be a problem with a fuse in the Microwave or is is a dud magnatron? How best to test?


Too many watts on same circuit. Plug it into a different outlet and see what happens, not on same circuit. So one that stays live when micro trips circuit breaker.

Hi. I have a hotpoint ud47i fan assisted oven which keeps tripping the oven related fuse box. Can't find any obvious faults. Strange thing is that once I reset the fuse box, the oven works again for 5-10...


The oven is tripping the circuit because it is pulling to many amps.

Best thing to do is get an electrician to install a larger amp circuit for you. This will fix the problem and should be cheaper than another stove.

Hotpoint tcl770 condencer tumble dryer, just out of warantee. when turn on and start it keeps tripping the electrics. changed plug fuse etc, tried in various sockets but keeps tripping the system???


internal problem, either heater coil or sensor or motor, you will need to get it checked, but don't plug it in again, as short circuits on high current machines can be dangerous.

The tripping can either be down to a short circuit drawing too much current and blowing the fuse , or an earth leakage blowing an RCD. You can eliminate the motor when it happen again , by unplugging it and see if the fuse blows (without turning the drum). Most likely is the heater , but i cannot explain why turning the drum allows it to continue. It is possible a wire is rubbing somewhere on the drum pulley , motor or casing. If the machine will immediately trip again if you don't move the drum , try isolating parts by disconnecting and then retrying.
